Immediately after Sam repels Melanie Merchant's initial attack, he turns to Sarah Blake, whose hair is strewn across her face in a close-up. This instantly cuts to a long shot and we see that Sarah's hair is no longer covering any part of her face. See more »


Sarah Blake: I don't mean to be forward, but, a girl could wait here forever. Is there something here, between us, or am I delusional?
Sam Winchester: You're not delusional...
Sarah Blake: But, there's a "but" coming.
Sam Winchester: But... I don't think this would be a good idea.
Sarah Blake: Can I ask why?
Sam Winchester: 'Cause I like you.
Sarah Blake: Wait, you, you lost me.
Sam Winchester: Look, it's hard to explain. It's just that when people are around me... I don't know, they get hurt.

Creepy Painting
25 December 2006 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Dean and Sam read on the newspaper about a young couple slashed in New York and they decide to investigate. They disclose that the victims have just bought an antique painting of 1910 in a beneficent auction and when they check its provenance, they find that three other families that owned the painting had been killed in the past. Further, the head of the family had murdered his wife, sons and stepdaughter with a razor blade. When the painting is sold to a local and she is also murdered, Sam and Dean with the support of the daughter of the auctioneer, Sarah Blake, disclose the truth about the killer.

"Provenance" is another great episode of Supernatural. The creepy and gore story finally shows a romance of Sam with a girl, and the killer is really scary. My vote is ten.

Title (Brazil): "Procedência" ("Provenance")
